MOSCOW, September 13. /TASS/. Russia’s top diplomat Sergey Lavrov has warned his South Korean counterpart Yun Byung-se against unproportioned military buildup in Northeast Asia in response to North Korea’s latest nuclear test, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.
"The sides discussed the situation on the Korean peninsula in the light of the latest nuclear test in the DPRK," the ministry said following the phone talks between the two diplomats.
"The Russian side has underlined the lack of options to the political-diplomatic resolution of the Korean peninsula’s nuclear problem via the resumption of relevant negotiations and display of restraint regarding the unproportioned military buildup in Northeast Asia," the ministry said.
North Korea carried out its fifth nuclear test on September 9, claiming to have successfully detonated a nuclear warhead that could be mounted on ballistic rockets. The blast is estimated to have had the explosive power of 10 kilotons, almost twice as large as the previous test in January.
